About the tour

Embark with Pepus on a leisurely walk to discover the two most incredible creations of Spain’s most famous architect, Antoni GAUDÍ in the elegant Passeig de Gràcia Ave; Casa BATLLÓ and Casa MILÀ, also called “La Pedrera”. Both whimsical Unesco’s World Heritage apartment buildings were conceived in GaudÍ’s unique organic architectural style to please the demands of two incredibly wealthy clients who had the urge to stand out in the bourgeois Barcelona society of the 1900s. In this tour, we will learn about the “Block of Disagreement” and the luxurious life of the most affluent industrialists of the glamorous Catalonian capital of “Modernism” at the time.
